Balancing the Viewer Experience and the Need to Monetize Video

Making business decisions around the usability and the user experience for consuming video is often limited by budget, technical limitations of consumer devices, and business rules around the consumption of media. At the Streaming Media West show (#smwest) in two weeks, Oct. 30-31, we’ve got Michael Dube, Manager of Systems Integration and Operations at HBO moderating a session on the subject of “Balancing the Viewer Experience and the Need to Monetize“.  This session touches on issues such as design and usability in conjunction with technical features such as ad integration, security concerns, and inclusion of social media functionality, as they examine the needs of content owners versus the desires of consumers. Confirmed speakers include:

  • Moderator: Michael Dube, Manager, Systems Integration and Operations, HBO
  • Tad Ro, Executive Director, Digital Media, Warner Bros Telepictures
  • Barry Blumberg, EVP, President, Alloy Digital and Smosh
  • Gerald Abrahamian, VP, Digital Operations, NBCUniversal
  • Jonathan Wilner, SeniorDirector, Product Management, Ooyala
